Comments: Only the holotype specimen is known. Wilkinson (1930) synonymized Apanteles brunneus with Apanteles annulicornis, but that was later questioned by Nixon (1965) after examining the hind wings of both holotypes. Nixon implied reinstatement of Apanteles brunneus as a valid species but he did not revise its status explicitly. However, Mason (1981: 86) treated brunneus as a valid species of Pseudapanteles.
St. Vincent Island (no further details known about the holotype locality).
